[Lynx-dev] styling of colour pairs

I would like to style some colour pairs in xterm a bit
differently from others.

I have these resources (among others):

XTerm*VT100*color0:             rgb:00/00/00
XTerm*VT100*color4:             rgb:00/00/AA
XTerm*VT100*color7:             rgb:AA/AA/AA
XTerm*VT100*color8:             rgb:55/55/55
XTerm*VT100*color12:            rgb:55/55/FF
XTerm*VT100*color15:            rgb:FF/FF/FF

The combination of blue on black, whether bright blue
or not, is not very legible:

printf '\033[0;34;40m foo \033[1m bar \033[0m\n'

The “bar” is bright enough, but the “foo” is illegible
to the extent I changed lynx’ and jupp’s styles for
lss and syntax highlighting to avoid blue-on-black. On
the other hand, this blue is perfectly fine as background
colour, such as:

printf '\033[0;1;33;44m baz \033[0m\n'

In fact, it *must not* be any brighter there.

Can you please add the ability to style colour pairs
to xterm, so that I can add suitable Xresources entries
to style (4,0) and (12,0) differently from the normal
colour4 and colour12?

Thanks in advance,
